The god and the river behind him

 This is statue of Dainichi Nyorai that stands before the tree that was in the last couple of posts. Notice that across the river, someone has put the Japanese style bedding over the wall to get some sun. This is a standard practice: if it is sunny, the bedding is hung in a sunny place outdoors.
Behind the tree and the statue was a small river, or maybe it is simply a drainage canal. In any case, there was a row of sandbags blocking the flow. I think they may be doing some work along the riverbank, for instance, improving the area where this water flows into the river.
